>> dana: hello. i'm dana perino with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, eric bolling, and our long-lost friend greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪
2:02pm
♪ >> dana: so president obama is about to return to washington after a guys' weekend in florida where he played a round of golf with tiger woods. we'd love to show you pictures but there aren't available because the press was shut out. didn't the president say this last thursday? >> this is the most transparent administration in history. i can documentbe how that is the case. >> dana: the white house press corps is not convinced. fox's senior white house correspondent ed when i have current the president of that group -- ed henry is the currently the president of the group and said they're frustrated not having access to the president all weekend and they will continue to fight for transparency in the days ahead. okay. golf-gate. gutfeld, since you are back and here, you're up first. this isn't really necessarily about golf. this is about the press' frustration feeling like they are not getting access. now that president obama doesn't have another election to run for, maybe the white
2:03pm
house press office is testing the waters to see how much they can shut them out. >> greg: the white house is acting like elvis presley's entourage. they only get upset with them when he ignores them. he should walk around in a white jump suit. people talk about him playing golf. i have never seen a picture of obama golfing so i called the white house and i said i demand proof that you actually played, that obama played golf. they sent me this picture which is interesting. interesting club, by the way. you think, do you think that president obama ever asked tiger woods why aren't they playing golf in california? it's an interesting question. why is tiger woods winning in florida? >> eric: why is smoke coming out of the golf club? >> greg: the fact is tiger lives and plays golf in florida. it has to tell obama something. it's called taxes. >> dana: the tiger woods piece to this is important. because on sunday, the white house press office told the reporters we have a lid. when you have a lid, that
2:04pm
means the president, you won't see him more today. nothing to see here folks, everybody can go home. then they find out that the guy from golf digest, a member of the coming up had been there. he's like oh, yeah, i saw the president and tiger woods are going to play happen. is newssy for a lot of reasons. what do you think of this, andrea? >> andrea: i don't think it's that big of a story. the president obama is a golfer. he loves to golf. we're always talking about how much he golfs. tiger woods i heard arguments this is not the best opticsor aperience for the president especially after he was in chicago talking about the importance of family. i don't care about that stuff. the reason they put a lid on it, as you said is because he promised 62 days ago he would not rest. until every american has a good job. this is only six weeks after the two-week hawaii trip. i don't think it looks good. but the transparency arguement is one that is fun to watch the press get frustrated with him. in their defense, he has been not transparent with a lot of other things they haven't covered. like invoking the executive
2:05pm
privilege on fast and furious. number of reporters have even documented that they responded to fewer freedom of information act requests than any administration in history. not transparent at all. >> dana: the frustration is that, it's been building. with technology now, the white house is able to communicate directly to people. they have their own videographer. do you have concern about the press corps and not able to get it back? >> bob: i'm the only golfer at this table. >> greg: i pe wee golf. have you hit the ball between the windmill? >> bob: just once. anybody that gets a chance to play 18 holes of golf with tiger woods ought to take it. >> eric: and his coach. >> bob: have eight hours of training before he went. party plus means outside.
2:06pm
>> bob: the cool van. >> dana: they put it on the white house briefing room the press would gather on the pool. >> dana: that is the point. what does he care? >> eric: here is what i would have asked him. president obama going on a guys' weekend, just goog the names he went with. i did it. and i found tony chase, big-time houston businessman who $35,500 per plate fundraisers for president obama. and carroll, board member of halliburton. did you know that? he crushes the oil companies but this one eric whitaker a long-time friend of president obama runs the u.h.i., urban
2:07pm
health initiative that got $5 $5.9 million in grant from one of the stimulus packages. when the taxpayer is paying $180,000 for air force one to fly down and met michelle obama going to aspen on another $180,000 at least for air force two to fly to aspen you have to question it. >> bob: that is a real surprise. that is a big surprise playing golf with contributors. >> greg: not one woman or transgendered individual playing golf. that the outrage! this is the bigotry of president obama. >> dana: soft big trill of golf excursions. >> greg: there is a golf war on women. >> dana: i want to say something about women, there is not enough women working in the west wing. if i would have been told hey, after this, it's so great. president obama is going to get to play with tiger woods, i would have said, i know you
2:08pm
think that is great. i don't think he should play this weekend, this particular weekend with tiger woods. he can play with tiger woods every day for the rest of his life starting january 21, 2017. until then, why don't we just keep it clean and not have him play with tiger woods? obviously going to get out. >> bob: because it wasn't a woman president that it was -- >> dana: if, i think -- yes, i don't -- i don't know. >> bob: i married a professional golfer. the first time i played golf with her, she beat me by 22 strokes. she hit from the men's tee. i asked if she should hit from the men's tee and she hit it and said next time you should play from women's tee. >> greg: it was ben krenshaw in a wig. >> dana: that is where bill o'reilly threw the first pitch. >> eric: do you think president obama is getting advice from tiger woods on personal issues? >> bob: probably not. on golf, yeah. >> dana: since you, you are a big guy on benghazi, let me
2:09pm
go to one other thing that happened yesterday on the way home. >> greg: what are you asking me for? >> dana: trying to be polite and collegial. >> greg: she's good. feeling stronger. >> dana:be your mom is strong. is she watching? >> greg: she is. say hello at the end of the show. she missed you and asked about everybody. you know, she looks forward to watching -- >> dana: what does she think of obama golfing with tiger woods? >> greg: she doesn't care. she would say it's okay to play with tiger woods but don't play in tiger woods. it's dangerous. >> andrea: don't you think after his "state of the union," the "state of the union" speech was so focused on the middle class. i just doesn't look good. the white house doesn't seem to care. >> dana: they don't care. >> andrea: they don't seem to care over and over. >> greg: you just got the -- >> eric: i get it. >> dana: i was going to show this clip. we still have time. senator john mccain
2:10pm
yesterday on "meet the press" about benghazi. >> there are many, many questions. we have had a massive coverup -- >> a massive coverup of what? susan rice said there was lot of confusion. >> do you care, david? do you care, david? do you care? i'm asking you. do you care? i'm asking you, do you care whether four americans died? the reasons for that? >> you said there is a cove coverup. the information concerning death of four brave americans. >> maybe senator mccain should join the press corps. >> the only question is did obama get his valentine's day card? all he did is what gregory did on the sandy hook thing. he didn't wave a magazine. about time the conservatives and the republicans ask do you care about death? the left says it to you, all the time. maybe obama would care more if
2:11pm
benghazi had 18-hole pga course there. fly out there. >> eric: gregory had another concern. he was concerned whether marco rubio was going to make it through the next speech without drinking water. >> bob: mccain called benghazi a massive coverup. that's going way over -- >> greg: what if it was moderate one? >> bob: if it was a screwup, not a coverup. that is a different. >> dana: why would they do it? >> bob: it was election time. >> dana: don't you think that is a story? >> andrea: they're not even admitting it was a coverup. >> bob: that is politics. >> andrea: the president talking about transparency, he said after the words benghazi is not a good example. he said that was largely driven by campaign stuff. four dead americans are campaign stuff. then we learn last thursday he didn't make one phone call at all. don't you think if you are the
2:12pm
president of the united states you would follow up to see how benghazi turned out? i mean there was no 3:00 a.m. phone call. he was just like don't call me at all. call me, maybe. no, don't bother me. it's bizarre. >> bob: at the expense of sounding cruel here, you know, there was a lot of things going on in the world. hundreds of thousands people die. a lot of -- >> dana: on 9/11 when you an american killed by al-qaeda terrorists? >> eric: can we make one more point. don't forget a couple hours later he flew to vegas. >> bob: i agree that was -- i said at the time, terrible idea. district to use a cliche we are tired of "if it were bush" god knows what would happen. >> bob: can we move that aside? >> greg: we can't. it's true. it's true. >> andrea: you worked in a number of white houses. when something like that happens and an attack on american soil, consulate is considered don't most president bring in joint chiefs and all of their cabinet agencies vapid a conference call? they don't say hey leon, it's up to you how to handle it and never follow up.
2:13pm
>> bob: i think that there was a lot going on in the middle east. over that period of days. i think probably he did. i don't know the answer to this. >> dana: they testified he didn't. >> bob: he is taking this massive imagery of a massive coverup and a scandal. it was sad and horrible thing. but it was not the biggest thing that happened to the united states government. >> andrea: eight-hour attack on a consulate. that is not exactly nothing. >> dana: all right. we got to go, we have more to talk about. coming up, is america ready for libertarian president? senator rand paul thinks he might be orb we might be ready for him. i'm not sure. we will discuss the pros and cons when we come back. ♪ ♪ [ woman ] my boyfriend and i were going on vacation, so i used my citi thankyou card to pick up some accessories. a new belt.

2:18pm
paul, and i wonder if he would absolutely not run unless it were to win. >> i would absolutely not run unless it were to win. points have been made and we'll continue to make points but i think the country is ready for the narrative coming, the libertarian republican narrative. also because we have been losing as a national party. >> greg: and there is karl rove. it wonder if he thinks rand paul had it right that everybody has a chance. >> i think rand paul has it right. everybody has a chance. let people go in and participate. it's opposite of the bureau. the more people who participate the better off we are. the more we examine the quality of the candidates from top to bottom, the likely we end up with fewer christine o'donnell's and more rand paul. >> greg: i think they would like to see more in this nation than open intelligent conversations, not just casting aspergess at each other. >> i would like like to see more often is open and intelligent conversation. not people just casting

2:20pm
greatly exaggerated because the republicans have a secret weapon. the democrats. while we may have a different republican savior every week there is a cop stant we can count on, inherent interruption of liberal ideas and that joe biden will say something stupid. he's the best thing to happen to republicans since dana perino. >> dana: i don't think that was a compliment. >> greg: it could be taken both ways. >> dana: okay. >> greg: much like a lot of things. andrea, is america ready for a libertarian president or really just saying a small government person with less military output? >> andrea: that is a very good question. libertarians had a lot of luck in the 1990s. since then not so much. i think they often are considered too controversial because of their positions on legalizing pot. which now has become more mainstream. and legalizing prosecutio prostn that a lot of conservatives can't wrap their arms around. rand paul is different. i like him a lot. i think that he speaks the
2:21pm
truth. he is very, very tough. he doesn't go back and forth. he is not his father. do we want to become a big tent? are we really that big innocent a lot of people say i'd love to vote republican but i can't because of the social issues. if we had someone more liberal we could get voters and open up the big tent. every election, democrats use the social issues around our necks. contract with america was great, because it doesn't get in social issues and something we could agree on. but they use the social issues like with todd akin. maybe somebody doesn't give them the opportunity. that would be a chance. >> does he have a personal? >> rand paul? >> greg: i can't tell if it's a natural hair curl or a perm. that is for the debate. we have a professional grad student in the office. and we have $6-gallon gas.
2:22pm
why not a libertarian? it can't be worse. >> bob: well, gutfeld, let me tell you. first of all, it's interesting to me you said a libertarian republican. libertarians are on the ballot every four years and they qualified for it for a long time now. he is clearly running for the republican presidential nomination. but the idea that rand paul and the good doctor and the republican party casting aroundbe for the various people tells me that the bench for the republicans, which we kept talking about would be mighty strong is not nearly as strong. rubio got a taste of what it's like to step in the midto feel mix and it's not pleasant. >> greg: he sold $200,000 of bottled water. i should be so lucky. >> eric: did you get a haircut? >> bob: i did. what's it to you? >> eric: the problem with me and libertarians is the whole thing about smaller military. true libertarian would say protect the borders don't have any foreign policy at all. that is tough to win anytime
